    stolen? you mean lost, I never had a phone stolen in 10 years that I own one but lost mine 2 or 3 times and I found a couple over the years.
    People need to stop texting and trying to do other things at the same time. The human brain can only keep track of one thing at a time.

    No, stolen is right. Most lost or misplaced phones are just that, lost or misplaced. Stolen phones are taken to obtain personal information, access accounts, to run up the bill, and to resell on the black market.

    True, but not relevant here.
    Not true. The human brain can keep track of many things at once - if trained and practiced to do so. But again, not relevant here.
